Goliath® Acquires Tucker™

 
With the Tucker acquisition, Goliath will continue to transform play and have a global presence in the sports and outdoor category.
Goliath, a global leader in the toy and game industry, announced today that it has acquired Tucker, one of the world’s top designers and marketers of innovative outdoor toys.

“After our most recent acquisition of Britz ‘n’ Pieces in Australia, Tucker is a great fit. We see an enormous potential in outdoor games and toys. By combining this with our successful product ranges, including Wahu, trampolines, Rocket Fishing Rod and more, we’ve firmly established our position as a market leader in the category,” said Adi Golad, founder of Goliath.

“When Adi approached us last year to explore possible synergies, we started talking and it resulted in a real win-win. We at Tucker can focus on what we do best, creating innovative “wow” products for all to enjoy,” said Mike Goldman, Founder and President of Tucker. “All international distributor agreements will remain in effect and retailers will continue to be serviced by their existing distributors. We will make the ownership change seamless to both our distributors and retail partners,” he continued.

Going forward, Tucker will operate as a center of ideation and R&D within Goliath to create fun and innovative new products.
